Championship Golf Course
at Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa
Championship Golf Course overview
Opened in 2001, the Dave Thomas designed Cardrona Championship Course is a true pleasure to play for any golfer visiting the Scottish Borders. Bearing many hallmarks of a classic Thomas design, Cardrona makes use of numerous strategically placed bunkers, narrow greens and a course which naturally contours with the hilly landscapes of the Scottish Borders.
Although it can be argued that the 6th hole on the Cardrona Championship Course is the members favourite, the 7th is certainly the signature. A 402-yard par-4 requires power yet accuracy off the tee to avoid the various hazards which may be a detriment to your score, with bunkers, trees, long rough and bumpy lies all playing a part. The green of the 7th is equally as difficult as the tee shot and approach requiring your best putting stroke as its highly undulating and can be deadly difficult in the summer when the ground is firmer.
